AND CHANGE THE COURSE OF HISTORY
“You ask how you can pray more, when can you pray more? Every time you think a thought, just turn it into a mighty prayer–all the time, anywhere, with anybody, even when you’re all alone. When you’re doing physical chores or routine duties, turn your thoughts into prayers throughout the day. Don’t let them pass you by, and you will accomplish so much more. Capture your thoughts, beam them up, right on target, and see miracles come to pass before your very eyes! All day long, no matter what else you’re doing, you’re thinking thoughts, but it’s how you direct them and filter them that can make a difference. What you decide to do with those thoughts and where you direct them is what counts. I tell you this to make your job easier. For as you learn to direct your thoughts in prayer, filtering them through the sieve of My Word, balancing them and directing them to Me, sending them on to where they can genuinely accomplish something, you will be able to fulfill this mission of prayer.
In the solitude of your thoughts you can turn them to prayers and change the course of history! Even in the busyness of your schedule, what you do with your thoughts can make a difference. Even in the course of your busy day, you can take the thoughts that come to you as a result of the input you see and receive all around you, and you can turn those thoughts into prayers. Therefore you should not just reserve this habit for your quiet times or prayer times, but you should try to get in the habit of capturing your thoughts and turning them into prayers at every opportunity. You should learn to discipline your mind and not let your thoughts wander, even during times when you’re relaxing. This method, this technique, this practice of turning every thought into a prayer will make your burdens lighter!
For thoughts are always entering your head; they’re constant. Therefore this art of turning every thought into a prayer will greatly enhance your prayer life and your prayer power. For as you pour out in this way, turning every thought into a prayer, I will pour into you great blessing and fill you with great satisfaction and great fulfillment. Be not as foolish children who do not appreciate the greatness of this power I make available to you, but instead choose to let their thoughts wander, or lie inactive, or waste away on empty vanities and that which will not last. But rather take hold, tap in to this great power that I put into your hands, and the great opportunity to turn every thought into a prayer.”
“If you turn your thoughts into prayers, they will accomplish that which is good. If you turn them toward vanity, they will come to no avail. Thoughts are real things! Thoughts are powerful, for thoughts can be turned into prayers, and prayer is powerful! If you want to know how to pray more, consider your thought power!”
